1 doctor agrees

In brief: Type 1

If you are a type 1, you need the insulin.
Glucophage (metformin) cannot replace the insulin. If you are a type 1 with Insulin resistance also, then glucophage (metformin) can also be used. So...Glucophage (metformin) can be used with but cannot replace the Insulin in a type 1.
